• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

yes !!!!!! I'm getting ready to be sent to the state mental ward Lol !!!!! But I got the ARC250 software and it expired and I really dont know how to program it right and I just figured why buy the software when I really dont know how to use it. Well I know how to use it some what but the problem I'm having is finding out what type systems we have in my area and how to set it to that type of system I have been reading on the types of systems and man it is driving me nuts !!! how ever I did get the digital tgid to come in clear on the sound quality so I did somthing right lol !!! But all I want it to do is work on my local digital pl tones which I dont know what that is or how to program it and all my local digital tgid's , And I know there is nothing wrong with the radio its just me cause I dont understand how to use the system So if I bought the software which one do I get cause there is three different types listed on there also if I get the software larry will you help me with it as much as you can ??? ALSO if you respond and i dont answer for a while it's because I went to the mental ward Lol !!!! Just kidding.

Yes, the same. Just start with Motorola 800 type II. Enter closest controller freq and alt. Run in search mode and see what comes up. Write those down and cross ref w/ database. Go back and enter ID's you wish to monitor. Run in ID Scan mode. Conventional freqs have PL or DPL tones. Lots of freqs in database have those listed. Its a squelch lock. [simple answer]. Entering text may be hard without software. This story is simular to the guy who bought a motor home and wouldnt buy a road map. He dident get very far. Good Luck.
